With no visitors -- and no income -- over the past 70 days, your donations from our first fundraising campaign sustained us into early May, ensuring our animals had the best of care.
Now, the time has come to reopen, but we need your help once again. With an anticipated opening in early June, we enthusiastically invested in software, sanitizer, signage and the additional staff needed to make Gladys Porter Zoo a safe place for our guests, animals and employees. But thoughtful reopenings are not without cost. Our emergency funds are nearly exhausted, as is our budget for animal care.
We look forward to seeing you very, very soon. Please consider a small donation until then.
